Protect the Verde!

October 18, 2023 at 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Northern Arizona’s upper Verde River is a little-known and under-appreciated river supporting some of the best surviving riparian habitat in the Southwest. Despite the tremendous value of the Verde to humans and wildlife, the river is deeply threatened. Gary Beverly, chair of the Yavapai Group of the Sierra Club, will describe the extensive efforts by many organizations to protect the upper Verde, including Wild and Scenic River designation, plus work to preserve the base flow. The presentation uses video and photos to reveal a rich wildlife resource, with 19 species listed by the Endangered Species Act and 16 additional species on the watch list. Also he will describe how individual citizens can help preserve this unique and wonderful river,
the only surviving living perennial river in Arizona.
